Planting Date: April 25, 2006                    
Harvest Date: July 31, 2006                    
Previous Crop:  Alfalfa burn down                  
Seeding Rate:  1.2 million live seeds/ac                

Returns were calculated by multiplying the 2006 yields by the price paid for feed barley minus the test weight discount paid at the Southwest Grain Terminal located at Gladstone on August 30.  The price paid on this date was $1.65/bu for grain with test weights heavier than 45 lb/bu.  Grain with a test weight of 45 lb/bu was discounted $.03/bu, with an additional discount of $.04/bu per pound down to 42 lb/bu.  Below 42 lb/bu, an additional discount of $.05/bu occurred per pound.
